Year 4 tutoring (Foundation classes)
Year 4 sessions begin in early September and run until mid-July. All sessions are held once a week during term time. They are one hour long, with a maximum of 6 children and cost £25 per session.
I cover a variety of subjects; English/Literacy, Maths/Numeracy, Verbal Reasoning, Non-Verbal Reasoning and reading comprehension.
This is a foundation year meant to get the children accustomed to new subjects and the additional work required when going to tutoring. The sessions are aimed at getting them to enjoy the new work and new skills, without finding it too highly pressured. The children will be given books to take home and are expected to read two chapters a week, for which I will have questions prepared at our next session. The goal is to get them to start reading more carefully and retaining what they have read. They will also receive homework which should not take more than 45 minutes per week to complete. Subjects are taught in blocks of three to four weeks at a time, for maximum retention.
Although most year 4 students go on to join us in year 5, this is not a requirement as the sessions are also suitable for children aiming to gain more confidence and boost their results in school.
